I was born—and raised Royal—in Kansas City, Missouri. Surrounded by supportive and influential family and friends, life in the Showme State helped form my values and drivers, particularly around relationships. I grew to believe in the power of a smile, a helping hand, genuine compliment—and really good BBQ.
When I packed my car in the spring of 2002, headed due north, I was ready for adventure and even a little risk. At that moment, I never could have or would have imaged how much that decision would change my life.
Omaha is now my home. It is where my husband and I are instilling our values with our son. This great city of Omaha is where we enjoy amazing friends and celebrate our milestones. It is where we work to make a real difference in our community. We love Omaha, but could someone help me find some quality BBQ?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing Management from Bellevue University. I am a proud graduate of Leadership Omaha Class 40–arguably the best class ever.
At RecruitZee, I am leading our team of Recruiters to help find the best talent across the great USA!
I was born in the City of Angels- Los Angeles California to a wonderful and fun-loving family. I am the middle child of three girls, and when I was still young my father sought a better opportunity and moved my family to Omaha to start our family business. He instilled that hard work and perseverance can help achieve the “American Dream”. Ever since then, I have called Omaha my hometown, and I am proud to say that I am from the Midwest.
Both of my parents are fluent in both Spanish and English, so I am blessed to be bilingual. I found that learning a different language and traveling has opened so many doors of opportunity for me. I have enjoyed quality time with my distant relatives in El Salvador and l have been able to spend quite a few months living in Central America. The memories made during that time will stay with me for years to come.
At Recruit Zee, I can utilize my skills as a bilingual recruiter to help people find the perfect fit for their future.
Oldest of seven children, my heart and my home is here in Omaha, where I grew up with lots of love, joy and laughter. Fun and goofy, I’ve always been able to find the sun on a rainy day. Being born and raised in Nebraska, I consider myself to be a true child of the corn. I attribute my positivity to Nebraska athletics. Go Huskers!
I recently got married to my beautiful wife Jacy, we are excited to start this next phase of life together with our three cats. We live in the downtown Omaha area, where we love to be involved in the vibrant community that exists near the River Front! You may even see us walking out and about with our cats on a nice day.
I have a bachelor’s degree in political science from University of Omaha at Nebraska but couldn’t be happier to jump fields from political science to recruiting!
My natural curiosity when it comes to people has been such an asset in this new career. I absolutely love being part of the RecruitZee team! The opportunity to be able to help build up RecruitZee and learn along the way has continued to be an invaluable experience. If I am the most joyful, weirdly interesting person you interact with that day I feel as though I have fulfilled my life purpose.
The process of restoration and redesign is my full-time hobby. I love a good thrift, and I find the process of turning someone else’s trash into my treasure to be endless rewarding.

I am a Nebraska native – born and raised in Lincoln but moved up to Omaha when I attended Creighton University. I have my Bachelors (Creighton) and my Masters (Bellevue University) both in Marketing but have spent most all of my professional career in a recruiting role. I’ve recruited within the accounting, construction, trucking, sales, healthcare, and academic industries, so I’ve gotten to know quite a wide range of roles, candidates and companies.
I’ve been married to my husband Colin (CJ) and we will be welcoming twin boys in the spring, which will bring our family to five! We also have our spunky 12-year-old mini dachshund, Frank! We are big fans of Huskers, golfing, and traveling and try to get our fill of each of those as much as we can!
I love working with people – finding the right person for the right role! If you have any questions for me, or about RecruitZee, don’t hesitate to contact me!
